Subject: Hilarious send-up of '50s DIY craze
The DIY craze of in the '50's gives creator idea of this goof-ball parody "A Saw Screams at Midnight": instructions for kooky gems such as "Birdhouse for Vultures", a "French Foreign Legionnaire Officer's Head" made of scraps, and the gut-busting homespun wall mottoes instead of the "Home Sweet Home" but "Weighed
in the balance, thou art found wanting." & "Where Will YOU Spend Eternity?

Cute.
